2015-16 Magnet Applications

The normal application period for all VUSD Magnet Schools has now closed.

The Lottery for both VUSD Magnet Middle Schools will occur during the 1st week of March. Families who are pulled in the initial Lottery process will receive phone calls through March. Per district policy, contacted families will have 2 business days to accept or decline their offer of admission. Once all initial seats in each grade level are filled, we will form our Wait List, by grade level. In April, Wait Listed families should receive a letter from the school identifying their placement on the Wait List. Due to life changes that often occur during the summer and fall, Wait List families may be contacted for enrollment up to October 1st, 2015.

We received more than 500 Applications for the 2015-16 school year. You may still complete and submit an application, but it will not be included in the initial Lottery process. Late applications can only be considered if all families that submitted applications during the VUSD Magnet Application period have been exhausted from the Wait List.
